Quentin Tarantino seeks Bruce Dern?
According to Deadline.com, Bruce Dern is the guy Quentin Tarantino has in mind for his next film, The Hateful Eight.
The 77-year-old actor is on a role after his starring turn in Alexander Payne's Nebraska, although he's never been short on work. A cameo in Tarantino's Django Unchained is one of his more recent credits
Dern is certainly the kind of guy who would end up in a QT movie.
In the '60s—before going all respectable—he was the house weirdo in Roger Corman efforts like The Wild Angels, The Trip, and Bloody Mama. And he was unforgettable as the Jesus-freak sculptor "The Seeker" in the 1968 drugsploitation classic, Psych-Out.
Here's Tarantino explaining what a "Dernsy" is at an AFI tribute last November.
